Q: How are people actually voting for in China?

I heard people in China get the chance to vote at one point or another, but most often don't really know who those people are. Are they even real?

The voting procedure in China is a complex system with many layers (or committees) in between.  You do vote directly for persons to represent you at the local level.  Then those elected form a committee and deliberate to name one of them as their representative on a higher one.  And thus, goes from local level, to municipal level, to province level, and finally arrive to the central government.  But there, it is not only one committee, but at least three more in ascending authority.  And finally, the top one will select officials to become President, Premier, and all other top positions. 

Those selected will serve for 10 years, and can not run for re-election once their term expires. 

Please bear in mind that I tried hard to simplify a very complex procedure as much as possible so it could be easily undertood.

That's basically my understanding of it too, minus mentions of bribery and corruption all the way up.

My understanding is that you can vote people out, not in.

China is basing their new election model on American Democracy.

 

The votes will be counted by Premier Election Solutions (formerly Diebold) using the world's most accurate electronic methods. In order to protect voter confidentiality, no record of votes will be kept and the system is impossible to audit.

Nobody gets to vote in China! The government appoints who goes to office not the local commoners.
